Big Cat Rescue

20 copyRoad trip…

Met up with my wonderful sister Sue and the Born Free rescue team today, in Johannesburg.

Two male lions Black & Jora (brothers) were rescued from a circus in Bulgaria where they spent the first 7 years of their life – in confined trailers, and performing in circuses around eastern Europe.

Finally, after 18 months of dedicated effort from the Born Free team and generous donations from the public the lions were handed over to Born Free. The rescue team immediately made the necessary 31 copyarrangements to transfer them to their Big Cat Sanctuary located within Shamwari Game Reserve, near Port Elizabeth in South Africa.

Land Rover generously sponsored 2 Discoverys with trailers and today we are driving with the lions to Shamwari, a 14 hour road journey. We should get there around 10/11pm and they will remain in their crates until daybreak tomorrow when they will be release them into their beautiful large enclosures.
